[audio]Digital Lysenkoism - Cory Doctorow
Here's a podcast of my last Publishers Weekly column, Digital Lysenkoism : Talking with the lower echelon employees of publishing reminds me of a description I once read about the mutual embarrassment of Western and Soviet biologists when they talked about genetics. Soviet-era scientists were required, on pain of imprisonment, to endorse Lysenkoism, a discredited theory of inheritance favored by Stalin for ideological reasons...

[audio]Why the death of DRM would be good news for readers, writers and publishers - Cory Doctorow
Here's a podcast of my last Guardian column, Why the death of DRM would be good news for readers, writers and publishers: At the end of April, Tor Books, the world's largest science fiction publisher, and its UK sister company, Tor UK, announced that they would be eliminating digital rights management (DRM) from all of their ebooks by the summer.

[audio]A Whip to Beat Us With - Cory Doctorow
Here's a podcast of my last Publishers Weekly column, A Whip to Beat Us With: Jim C. Hines's e-books are marketed both through a big publisher and solo. The books that were re-priced by Amazon were his solo titles -- unagented, and unrepresented by a major publisher. As an individual, Jim has no leverage over Amazon. Not so Macmillan, which controls a much larger number of SKUs and has much more leverage...

[audio]Doubling Down on DRM - Cory Doctorow
Here's a podcast of my recent Publishers Weekly column, Doubling Down on DRM: I've just seen a letter sent to an author who has published books under Hachette's imprints in some territories and with Tor Books and its sister companies in other territories (Tor is part of Macmillan). The letter, signed by Hachette's U.K. CEO Ursula Mackenzie, explains to the author that Hachette has 'acquired exclusive publication rights in our territories from you in good faith,' but warns that in other territo...

[audio]How Amazon is holding Hachette hostage - Cory Doctorow
Here's a reading (MP3) of my latest Guardian column, How Amazon is holding Hachette hostage, which examines how Hachette's insistence on DRM for their ebooks has taken away all their negotiating leverage with Amazon, resulting in Amazon pulling Hachette's books from its catalog in the course of a dispute over discounting: Under US law (the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act) and its global counterparts (such as the EUCD), only the company that put the DRM on a copyrighted work can remove it...
